E. R. Garrett Cleaning Contractors was set up in 1989 by Eddie Garrett as a sole trader, in 1991 Eddie was joined by his wife Thirl Garrett following her voluntary redundancy from her job in the motor trade.
Eddie took full control of the operations and the development of the company whilst Thirl looked after the administration of the company. (Not Eddies strong point) The business continued to grow both in turnover and client base terms and in November 2003 it was decided to make the company Limited and changed the name to E. R. Garrett Cleaning Contractors Ltd.
Eddies brother Andy joined the company as a cleaning operative to help. Andy is now personally responsible for contracts such as Haynes Publishing and Yeovil Town Football Club among others as one of the key members of management.
In 2012 it became very clear that Eddie needed more help in running and management of all contracts including schools, factories and offices etc. It was then that Craig Girling (nick named Craigie baby) became more involved. Craig started working for Eddie as a sprightly 12 year old. After 12 years of hard work, training and several ‘you know whats!’from Eddie he was promoted to Operations Manager and is now a big part of the general day to day running of the company.
Now in our 26th year of existence we cover all aspects of the cleaning industry and are very proud of our achievements. We employ in total approx. 63 people in an area ranging from Plymouth up to Southampton and the M5 corridor.
All management including the directors are fully involved in the day to day operations and Eddie is often seen on various sites either on his hand and knees cleaning skirting boards, cleaning carpets, polishing floors or anything else which requires a helping hand.
E. R. Garrett Ltd has been built on the hard work theory and everybody helps each other, in Craig Girling we have an excellent operations manager who has no fear of hard work and is always happy to help.
If you and your business require any type of cleaning from one off carpet cleans to daily contract cleaning of offices, schools, workshops or factories please do not hesitate to contact us.
